This mayor must have Maryland Roots
Life is too short, stop to smell the roses and don't let anyone take it away from you!
Interesting read...perhaps the news media (including Fox News) should read it before spouting off about people carrying in airports.
No one is allowed beyond security check points while armed; they do not seem to understand the 'meat' of this law, and how the Mayor of Atlanta has chosen to ignore it.
I'm confident the court will smack the Mayor's hands!
Stay armed...to and from the airport...stay safe!

Most states in the country allow some form of airport carry in non-sterile areas. I believe there are only seven states where it isn't allowed.
The City of Atlanta is posed to lose to Georgia Carry yet again. But unlike previous battles, this time the outcome of the lawsuit has ramifications for Franklin and DeCosta personally.
US Code 42 Chapter 21 Section 1983
Section 1983. Civil action for deprivation of rights
Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance,
regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the
District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any
citizen of the United States or other person within the
jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges,
or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable
to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other
proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought
against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such
officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted
unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was
unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress
applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be
considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.
I would like this to be the last time anyone in Georgia, especially in Atlanta, attempts to circumvent the Amendment II freedoms protected by state law and the BOR in a pursuit of a personal agenda. I want these bozos to be made example of, so others are very keenly aware of the ramifications of interfering with the lawful carry of firearms.
We shall see. July 21 is quickly approaching.
Once YouTube has finished processing the video of the press conference that I have, I'll add it to this thread.
GCO has filed a motion for a preliminary in junction against Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and the City of Atlanta, requesting that the defendants be enjoined from arresting people for lawfully carrying firearms in the Airport during the pendency of the case against them. The brief supporting the motion and other documents may be viewed here.
To paraphrase a governor from a neighboring state back in the day..
"In the name of the most elitest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of freedom, and I say gun bans now, gun bans tomorrow, gun bans forever."

Here's hoping that the rights of Georgia citizens are upheld.

GA State Rep. Tim Bearden, the author of HB89, debated a Brady lawyer on national news who accused firearms license holders of "thousands" of homicides, and then states that a license holder is just a "terrorist who has not committed a crime yet."
Wow. Can you believe that? The Bradies and their ilk must be pretty desperate, because they're riding the fear bandwagon for every mile that they can get from it. But terrorists? Man. That's taking it a little too far.
And reasonable people actually support these idiots with financial contributions?

Also, it appears that the City of Atlanta has hired an outside law firm to represent them in the federal case. How they can afford this I don't know. Just last night, a news report stated that city officials are waiting by the phone for the next round of lay-offs from the city. This after Franklin laid off 1400 city workers in April, including police and fire, to the tune of a couple hundred, in order to control the city's deepening financial crisis.
But they have the cash to pay for the Atlanta law firm Alston & Byrd? Apparently five of their attorneys will work on the case. The first hearing in federal court is scheduled for July 18th.
I can't express the contempt I have for the Mayor, both as a resident of the city and as a license holder of the State of Georgia. She's just pathetic.
Wow. Sounds like it's time for new leadership in Atlanta. The Mayor is running the city into the ground - to the point where she's laying off policemen and now she wants to strip the individual's gun rights? Sounds nefarious to me! Or did she declare Atlanta a Crime Free Zone too?
